25 Seriously Disturbing Serial Killers from Around the World

by J.M. on July 12, 2010 · 205 comments

I watch a lot of scary movies. Vampires, werewolves, zombies… they’ve got nothing on one other group when it comes to scaring me — serial killers. Even when they’re just fictional characters, I find serial killers to be terrifying not because I expect to come across one any more than a movie monster, but because they represent something real.

These awful excuses for human beings do exist, and they pose a real threat to society. They come in all shapes and sizes, colors, and races. Today we’ll take a quick look at 25 serial killers from around the world. There will be some of the more well-known U.S. and other serial killers, but we’ll also have some from places like Russia, Indonesia, Mexico, China, and more. They aren’t all the most famous serial killers. You’ve probably never heard of some of them. And some of your “favorites” won’t be included here. This list is a little different.

Rather than focusing solely on well-known serial killers (although some will be included), we’re looking at a more diverse group — both men and women, different races and nationalities, etc. Even more importantly, I wanted to take a look at some of the world’s recent and distant serial killers with some of the most disturbing motives or stories.

Keep in mind…. I’m not claiming these are THE most disturbing serial killers. There have been too many for me to ever know about them all, and that would be subjective. These are just some examples of particularly disturbing individuals that caught my attention or made me cringe. If other serial killers top your own personal list, feel free to leave a comment below to tell us about them.

25 Disturbing Serial Killers from Around the World

The serial killers profiled below are listed in alphabetical order (by first names) — not in any order based on how “disturbing” I might find them, by race, nationality, etc. Also, understand that the definition of “serial killer” is heavily debated. For example some definitions simply state there must be a break between killings to separate serial killers from mass-murderers. Other definitions give a specific length that break must be in order to qualify as a serial killer rather than a spree killer. We’re not going split hairs about that here.

Note: Where legal images were available for re-publication, I’ve included them below. You can run a Google image search to view other serial killers from the list if you’re interested — but having them appear in image search results doesn’t give us the right to publish them here for you directly. I did, however, try to link to one page with an image where possible when one wasn’t available for republication.

Now, let’s get to the list.

1. Ahmad Suradji


The idea of ritualistic serial killers on one hand baffles me and on the other hand fascinates me. They’re a reminder that the world is full of different cultures where different practices are considered acceptable than here in the West.

But Ahmad Suradji doesn’t seem to be following any kind of cultural norm. Instead he just sounds deranged. At the same time, I have to admit it’s one of the more “interesting” excuses or motives I’ve ever seen. Here’s more on Indonesian serial killer, Ahmad Suradji.

Victims: Suradji murdered 42 females between the ages of 11 and 30. The killings took place over 11 years.

Kill Zone: Medan, Indonesia

Methods: Suradji buried his victims up to their waists and strangled them with a cable.

Motives: Suradji conducted ritual killings. He claimed to be told by his father’s ghost in a dream that by killing these women and drinking their saliva, he would become a mystic healer.

Outcome: Ahmad Suradji was found guilty on April 27, 1998 of his crimes and was executed by firing squad on July 10, 2008.

Additional Information: One of Suradji’s three wives (Tumini) was tried as an accomplice. Often Suradji’s victims were women who came to him seeking his services as a healer.

2. Aileen Wuornos

On one hand, I can understand that traumatic experiences can lead to disturbing behavior. Still…. Call me crazy, but I just can’t see trauma caused by someone else as justification for murdering others. Then again, that’s probably because I’m not crazy. Aileen Wuornos is the first female serial killer on our list here, and she’s an example of someone who was (or who claimed to be) traumatized, leading to the murders of several men.

Victims: Wuornos killed 7 men between the ages of 40 and 65.

Kill Zone: Florida, United States

Methods: The murders were committed with multiple gun shots.

Motives: Wuornos claimed that the men she killed had raped her (or tried to) while she was working as a prostitute.

Outcome: Wuornos was executed by lethal injection on October 9, 2002.

Additional Information: Aileen Wuornos’ story was the basis for the movie Monster. She had a child when she was a young teen, claiming she was raped by an unknown man. However, it’s suspected by some that her brother actually fathered the child.

3. Alexander Pichushkin


Alexander Pichushkin is a Russian serial killer known as “The Chessboard Killer.” Unlike some killers who have almost understandable motives (such as being abused or tortured themselves in some way — not that it excuses anything), Pichushkin is a whole different level of crazy. He killed for the competition of it.

Victims: Pichushkin has 48 verified victims. While not all, most of them were elderly homeless men.

Kill Zone: Moscow, Russia

Methods: Most of Alexander Pichushkin’s victims were killed with hammer blows to the head. He preferred to strike them from behind supposedly to avoid spilling blood on himself. He then threw some of his victims into the sewers.

Motives: It is believed Pichushkin considered himself to be in competition with another serial killer — Andrei Chikatilo. At one point he mentioned that his “goal” was to kill 64 victims — enough to fill the squares on a chessboard, hence his nickname.

Outcome: Pichushkin was convicted on October 24, 2007 to life in prison, including 15 years of solitary confinement.

Additional Information: Pichushkin has been quoted as saying “For me, life without killing is like life without food for you…. I felt like the father of all these people, since it was I who opened the door for them to another world.” He was kept in a glass cage during his trial.

4. Andrei Chikatilo


You’ve already seen the name Andrei Chikatilo mentioned, because he was at least partially the inspiration for another Russian serial killer — Alexander Pichushkin. Chikatilo was known by two nicknames — “The Red Ripper” and “The Rostov Ripper.”

Victims: Chikatilo killed 53 women and children (of both genders).

Kill Zone: Rostov Oblast, Russia

Methods: Chikatilo didn’t kill all of his victims in the same way. Most were stabbed, but a few were strangled or battered to death. All were mutilated.

Motives: Chikatilo killed for sexual satisfaction — he could only become aroused by committing violent acts against women.

Outcome: Andrei Chikatilo was shot and executed on February 14, 1994.

Additional Information: Chikatilo was impotent due to a childhood illness, yet had two children of his own. His son Yuri was charged with the attempted murder of a man.

5. Carl Eugene Watts


One thing I find particularly disturbing is when killers start young and no one “notices” or stops them before they can escalate. According to Watts, he was one of those kinds of killers.

Victims: Watts killed females between the ages of 14 and 44. Twelve victims are confirmed, but it’s expected that there were more — possibly dozens.

Kill Zone: Texas and Michigan, United States

Methods: Watts wasn’t faithful to any particular method of killing his victims. He use strangulation, stabbing, drowning, and beatings.

Motives: While his motives aren’t believed to be sexual in nature (as with many serial killers), they aren’t known.

Outcome: Watts died of cancer on September 21, 2007 shortly after being sentenced to life in prison. Prior to this, he had been serving time in Texas.

Additional Information: Watts is believed to have had an IQ of just 68, and he may have killed his first victim at the young age of 15.

6. Carlton Gary


I won’t say that I do or don’t believe Carlton Gary is guilty of being “The Stocking Strangler.” But for all that we know, that’s who he is. Others disagree, and believe it’s a case of poor evidence. What do you think?

Victims: Carlton Gary is believed to have killed 7 elderly women.

Kill Zone: Georgia, United States

Methods: Victims were beaten, raped, and then strangled to death.

Outcome: Gary was convicted of murder on August 26, 1986 and then sentenced to death. He is still on death row.  He was supposed to be executed on December 16, 2009 but the Georgia Supreme Court stopped his execution the day it was supposed to happen to allow for a hearing on the DNA evidence.

7. Dana Sue Gray


Have you ever seen an “outfit to die for?” Apparently serial killer / shopaholic Dana Sue Gray has. This has got to be one of the most screwed up motives for murder I’ve seen. But really, greed is one of the oldest I guess.

Victims: Gray killed 3 elderly women age 57 – 87, and a fourth victim survived.

Kill Zone: California, United States

Methods: Two of the victims were strangled with telephone cords (the survivor was one of them), one was beaten, and one was stabbed.

Motives: Gray’s motives were financial. She said she killed her victims to support her overwhelming need to shop. She stole cash and credit cards from her victims to help support her lifestyle.

Outcome: Gray was convicted and sentenced to life without parole on October 16, 1998.

8. Dean Arnold Corll


Child molester / serial killer, Dean Arnold Corll — known as “The Candy Man” — received a fate rather deserved (at least in this writer’s eyes). I won’t even share what I think should be done to people who abuse and kill children. This is the kind of killer nightmares are made of.

Victims: He killed 27 or 28 young boys.

Kill Zone: Texas, United States

Methods: Victims were raped / sexually assaulted, tortured, and then strangled or shot.

Outcome: He was killed by one of his accomplices.

Additional Information: He had two accomplices who found his victims for him — for $200 each. Apparently that’s the price of a little boy’s life.

9. Elizabeth Báthory

Now let’s take a look at one of the worst female serial killers known, even if a few centuries too late — the “Blood Countess” Elizabeth Báthory.

Victims: Although she was never personally tried, hundreds of female accomplices were convicted for 80 murders.

Kill Zone: Kingdom of Hungary

Methods: Victims were treated to torture, mutilation, and beatings.

Outcome: The accomplices of Elizabeth Báthory were executed. She, on the other hand, was bricked into rooms of her castle for house arrest. She was found dead on August 21, 1614.

Additional Information: Legend has it that she killed and then bathed in the blood of virgins to try to maintain her youth.

10. Gary Leon Ridgway


Gary Leon Ridgway — “The Green River Killer” — makes my list of one of the most disturbing serial killers for the sheer volume of victims he had. It’s a reminder that sometimes awful people really can evade the law for quite some time. And that is something I find terrifying.

Victims: Ridgway was convicted of 48 murders, although he confessed to killing 71 women. He generally killed prostitutes that he would pick up and have sex with before committing the murders.

Kill Zone: Washington, United States

Methods: Strangulation

Outcome: Ridgway pled guilty to 48 counts of murder on November 5, 2003. He was then sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Additional Information: Ridgway is said to have an IQ of 82.

11. Gregorio Cárdenas Hernández


When I think of violence in Mexico, I tend to think about drug-related instances and deaths — not serial killers. But I guess we all have our “outstanding citizens” don’t we? Gregorio Cárdenas Hernández — also known as the “Strangler of Tacuba” — didn’t have a lot of victims. But what he did with them is disturbingly strange.

Victims: Cárdenas Hernández killed 3 teenage girls — two 16-year-old prostitutes and one 19-year-old student.

Kill Zone: Mexico City, Mexico

Methods: After having sex with his victims, he strangled them and buried their bodies in his garden.

Outcome: He was arrested and given a life sentence in 1942, but escaped from prison in 1947. After being re-arrested he stayed in prison until 1976 when he was pardoned, cited as a great example of rehabilitation. He died in 1999, of natural causes.

Additional Information: He studied law and psychiatry while in prison, and practiced law after his release. He also wrote three books.

12. Huang Yong


Apparently “because I wanted to” is a good enough motive to become a serial killer for some. I don’t know about you, but in my mind that’s even worse than killing people for their money because you like to spend too much.

Victims: Yong killed at least 17 teenage boys (but based on a survivor’s account, it was 25).

Kill Zone: Henan province, China

Methods: He drugged, rapes, and then suffocated his victims.

Motives: Huang Yong was quoted as saying “I’ve always wanted to be an assassin since I was a kid, but I never had the chance.”

Outcome: He was both sentenced to death and then executed by firing squad December 2003 — apparently the Chinese don’t wait around. And in this case and the admission, really, I can’t say I blame them.

Additional Information: Yong was a migrant laborer, and he kept his victim’s belts as souvenirs. He claimed that killing females wouldn’t make him as much of a “hero” as killing males.

13. Jack the Ripper

Jack the Ripper might be famous, but he’s still relatively unknown. His identity has never been discovered. In fact, the murders attributed to him might not have even been committed by the same person. But Jack the Ripper makes my list of some of the most disturbing serial killers in the world because, real or not, the lore surrounding those Whitechapel killings went a long way towards solidifying the image of the sinister serial killer in many of our minds — an image that might even be dangerous, given the socially charming nature of others.

Victims: Jack the Ripper was believed to have killed at least 5 prostitutes from 1888-1891.

Kill Zone: London, England (Whitechapel District)

Methods: Victims’ throats were slit and their abdomens were mutilated.

Additional Information: A letter supposedly sent to the media from the killer ignited a media frenzy around the image of Jack the Ripper.

14. Jeffrey Dahmer


Yes, Jeffrey Dahmer is another one of the more famous serial killers, but I didn’t promise to leave them all off. Let’s just say there was precious little Dahmer did that didn’t make him disturbing enough for this list. Eating your victims is more than enough for me.

Victims: Dahmer killed 17 young men and boys. His victims were of Asian or African descent.

Kill Zone: Wisconsin, United States

Methods: Dahmer was guilty of rape, torture, necrophilia, and cannibalism.

Outcome: Jeffrey Dahmer was sentenced to 15 terms of life in prison in 1992, and he was killed by a fellow inmate on November 28, 1994.

Additional Information: Apparently on May 27, 1991, a 14 year old victim got away. But when he went to police and Dahmer claimed he was his 19 year old boyfriend, police returned the boy to the killer. The boy was murdered that night.

15. Luis Garavito


“La Bestia,” Luis Garavito, is one of the most prolific serial killers on our list. He’s another one who preyed on young boys, making him doubly disgusting — both for his choice in victims and the number of people he killed.

Victims: There are at least 138 confirmed victims of Luis Garavito — young boys.

Kill Zone: He committed his murders across 59 counties in Colombia.

Methods: Victims were raped, had their throats slit, and were then dismembered.

Outcome: Garavito was convicted on April 22, 1999, and is serving the maximum sentence available in Colombia. Although that sentence is only 30 years, he could still possibly be tried for other crimes he wasn’t yet convicted for, keeping him in longer. That said, there’s also the possibility he could be released early.

16. Mary Ann Cotton

Mary Ann Cotton is a prime example of the “black widow” type of female serial killer. She tended to kill husbands, lovers, or those in her way. Well, you know what they say about a “woman scorned” — or in this case just a woman who wants something from you.

Victims: Cotton had 21 victims including husbands, lovers, and “competitors” (other women who were involved with her male victims).

Kill Zone: Durham, England

Methods: Cotton poisoned her victims.

Motives: She killed her victims for two reasons: financial security (collecting on life insurance policies) and jealousy.

Outcome: Cotton was hanged in March 1873.

Additional Information: At the time it was assumed many of her victims died of “gastric fever” rather than poison.

17. Moses Sithole


Moses Sithole is a South African serial killer. What makes him most disturbing isn’t even how he killed his victims, but rather the fact that he would call and taunt his victims’ families.

Victims: Sithole killed 30 or more women before he was tried.

Kill Zone: Johannesburg, South Africa

Methods: Victims were raped and strangled.

Outcome: He was convicted on December 5, 1997 and sentenced to 2410 years in prison. He will be eligible for parole after 930 years — 2927. That’s an oddly comforting, if not almost amusing, thought.

Additional Information: Sithole is believed to have posed as a businessman offering jobs in order to gain the trust of the women he murdered.

18. Peter Kürten

When you think of vampires, what era do you think of? I certainly don’t think of the 1900s… unless we’re talking about movies. But around 1930 the world met serial killer Peter Kürten, labeled the “Vampire of Düsseldorf.”

Victims: While he was only charged with 9 murders and 7 attempted murders, Kürten actually confessed to 79 killings.

Kill Zone: Düsseldorf, Germany

Methods: He intentionally chose to use a variety of killing methods to keep police in the dark about the connection between the murders.

Motives: His motive was of the good old “can’t get it up” variety. He killed for sexual stimulation, needing to see blood to become aroused.

Outcome: I’m sure he would have been pleased by the blood on display July 2, 1931 when he was executed by guillotine.

Additional Information: Kürten claimed that he committed his first murders when he was just 5 years old, drowning two friends.

19. Robert Hansen


Robert Hansen took advantage of the Alaskan wilderness when he killed his victims. All in all he isn’t much different than other serial killers. What caught my attention about Hansen was his seeming addiction to “the hunt” — and I don’t just mean finding new victims.

Victims: Hansen is believed to have killed somewhere between 17 and 21 young women, with a particular emphasis on prostitutes.

Kill Zone: Alaska, United States

Methods: Hansen’s victims were kidnapped, raped, then released. Hansen would then hunt his victims around his cabins like hunting game, and they were ultimately killed with a hunting knife or a rifle.

Outcome: Hansen pled guilty to 4 of the murders, and has served in various federal prisons since June 13, 1983.

Additional Information: Hansen took jewelry from his victims.

20. Robert Maudsley


Robert Maudsley — “Hannibal the Cannibal” — makes the list not only for the belief that he ate part of the brain of one of his victims, but because of the types of people he killed.

Victims: Maudsley had 4 victims, but 3 of them were murdered while they were in prison.

Kill Zone: Berkshire, England

Methods: One victim was killed by strangulation, another by torture, and two others by stabbings.

Outcome: Maudsley initially went to prison in 1974. But after killing 3 fellow prisoners he was placed in solitary confinement in 1983.

Additional Information: Three of Maudsley’s 4 victims were actually child molesters or sex offenders. Honestly that makes me dislike him just a wee bit less.

21. Robert Pickton


Here’s another killer who didn’t make this list because of how he killed his victims, but rather for something he did with their bodies after the fact. Robert Pickton fed the bodies of his victims to pigs. Yeah.

Victims: Pickton was convicted of killing 6 people, but charged with the murders of 20 others. He murdered prostitutes.

Kill Zone: Vancouver, Canada

Methods: Pickton killed his victims by strangling and mutilation. Details are largely unknown about victims he wasn’t convicted on, but there were also possibly gunshot victims.

Outcome: His conviction on 6 counts of second degree murder happened on December 9, 2007. He’s serving a life sentence with no possibility of parole for 25 years.

Additional Information: Robert Pickton’s story was loosely used in an episode of TV’s CSI and also served as the basis for an episode of Criminal Minds.

22. Saeed Hanaei


I don’t know which is worse… killing people because you are morally depraved, or killing people because you think you’re cleansing that depravity or corruption. Apparently Iranian serial killer Saeed Hanaei — the “Spider Killer” — had no problem with the latter.

Victims: Hanaei killed 16 prostitutes, with an emphasis on prostitutes who were drug addicts.

Kill Zone: Mashad, Iran

Methods: Hanaei strangled his victims.

Motives: He killed his victims because he believed he was eliminating their moral corruption.

Outcome: Saeed Hanaei was hanged on April 8, 2002.

Additional Information: Hanaei was called the “spider killer” because he lured women to his home before having sex with and murdering them, similar to the way a spider lures prey into its web. Hanaei was a high profile and controversial figure in Iran. Some fundamentalists even praised his actions (although I can’t quite see how sleeping with prostitutes before killing them is any kind of moral high ground — but hey, that’s just me). Hanaei’s murders were the inspiration behind Alice Cooper’s 2008 “Along Came a Spider.”

23. Ted Bundy

Okay. So Ted Bundy is another pretty well-known serial killer. But cutting off and keeping the heads of victims definitely puts him in my list of seriously disturbing serial killers.

Victims: Bundy confessed to over 30 murders of white middle-class females between the ages of 15 and 25.

Kill Zone: Washington, Oregon, Utah, Idaho, Colorado, and Florida, United States

Methods: Bundy’s victims were beaten then strangled. He was also guilty of rape and necrophilia.

Outcome: Bundy faced execution by the electric chair in Florida on January 24, 1989.

Additional Information: Bundy tended to kill women that resembled his fiancé and had similar hair styles. But because they were physically different in other ways, Bundy denied a resentment towards here was part of his motive.

24. Tsutomu Miyazaki


Well, when someone’s known by names like the “Little Girl Murderer” and “Dracula,” it just can’t be good. I’m guessing the “Dracula” title would be a hint that Tsutomu Miyazaki drank blood from his victims. But here’s the even more disturbing part. (And yes… it gets more disturbing than drinking the blood of little girls.) He was also known to have eaten hands of a victim. Oh, and just for good measure, he went out of his way to torment his victims’ families. I literally can’t read about this man without feeling physically ill.

Victims: Miyazaki killed 4 little girls between 4 and 7 years old.

Kill Zone: Tokyo, Japan

Methods: Bodies were mutilated and corpses were molested.

Outcome: Miyazaki was sentenced to death April 14, 1997 and hanged June 17, 2008.

Additional Information: Miyazaki was born with deformed hands fused directly to his wrists, and contacted family members of victims with cryptic, taunting messages (and even the cremated remains of one victim). At one point, anime and horror films were cited as the reason for his crimes.

25. Zodiac Killer

What can I say? I find unknown serial killers to be rather disturbing. Are they still out there? I don’t know. But that’s why the well-known Zodiac Killer makes my list. The thought that these monsters could evade arrest gives me the willies.

Victims: The Zodiac Killer has 7 confirmed victims (5 dead and 2 survivors). However some believe the killer has as many as 37 victims.

Kill Zone: California, United States

Methods: Victims were killed via stabbings and shootings. Various cases were linked because of the Zodiac letters sent to newspapers. The letters included strange symbols and ciphers, some of which are still unsolved. They also included lines such as “Me=37, SFPD=0,” announcing 37 victims for the killer and no points for the police. The letters date from August 1969 to 1974 (last confirmed).

Motives: One deciphered code claimed the thrill of killing was a motive, as well as talking about the victims serving as his slaves in the afterlife.

Additional Information: Dirty Harry is loosely based on these crimes, among other films like 2007′s Zodiac.

Given that this is a blog post and not a book, it would be absolutely impossible to share details about all of the world’s serial killers. These are some of the ones who jumped out at me and disgusted, intrigued, or disturbed me in some way — at least a bit moreso than the others. What about you? Is there a local or historical serial killer you’re aware of that has a disturbing story, methods, or motives? Feel free to share that information with the rest of us by leaving a comment.

The devil knows when to look attractive. And Ted Bundy was handsome and cultured and charming. Until he was strangling and mutilating his victims, displaying their lopped-off heads in his apartment and sleeping with their corpses until putrefaction made it unbearable. Then he was simply the devil. By 1989, when he was executed in the electric chair in Florida at the age of 43, he had confessed to just about 30 murders but there could have been at least four more. He was an insatiable killer. One theory has him killing as early as the age of 14, but Bundy — who chose to divulge many of his secrets as he tried to bargain for more time before execution — never confessed to that incident. As a law student, Bundy had been arrested on a kidnapping charge in 1975 and was awaiting trial for murder in December 1977 when he escaped. From January to February of 1978, he went on a spree of killing and rape. Among his victims was a 12-year-old girl. Finally brought to trial, he acted as his own defense lawyer in a mesmerizing televised legal proceeding. And despite the horror of his acts, he proposed marriage to and wed a former coworker from behind bars. He also received thousands of letters from female fans. At the end, though, his appeals were exhausted and his attempts to manipulate the system became tiresome. His wife divorced him and took custody of their child. Somewhere out there is a young woman who may not know that her father was the devil.

‘Hunting Serial Killers’

An interesting read:
(snipet)America’s serial killers prey on women — to an extent only hinted at by Hollywood films and best-selling novels.

According to never-before-released FBI data, women accounted for 70 percent of the 1,398 known victims of serial killers since 1985. By comparison, women represented only 22 percent of total homicide victims.

The FBI’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Program, or ViCAP, based in Quantico, Va., released the data at the request of Scripps Howard News Service. SHNS is conducting an investigation into the nation’s more than 185,000 unsolved homicides committed since 1980.

According to the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Report, local police reported about 33,000 homicides of women remain unsolved.

FBI agent Mark Hilts, head of the bureau’s Behavioral Analysis Unit No. 2 that profiles serial killers, said “a large number” of serial killers act with a sexual motive.

“Sex can be a motivation, but it’s a motivation in conjunction with something else — with anger, with power, with control,” Hilts said. “Most serial killers do derive satisfaction from the act of killing, and that’s what differentiates them” from those who kill to help commit or conceal another crime.

Crime experts for decades have tried to define serial murder and to determine its causes and motivations. The Justice Department currently defines a serial killer simply as someone who kills two or more people in separate incidents, a definition that ignores the issue of motive.

CP by Wolfscratch: “The FBI BAU 2 statistics wll be altered dramatically, if and when the ‘Truth’ of Gary Michael Hilton & Associates evil reign of terror are revealed to the American Public”…


Emily Smith December 5, 2010 at 11:19 pm

I am a teacher helping student write a research paper on serial killers. Albert Fish is one that has been discussed in the blogs but not on the website. Extemely disturbing. Lived and killed in New York in the early to mid 1900′s. People were so ignorant to the fact that a human could do these things to a child said that it had to be the boogey man, a werewolf, or Count Dracula. He would kill young children, slice them up, and cook them. He would then send letters to their family members about how he desecrated their bodies, and how they tasted.

I was being poisoned by my family! my wife Joan Wagar was having an affair with a man named Eric Carlson at East Port Walmart and they decided they wanted me dead!

They both have relatives in law enforcement and those relatives gave them permission to poison me to death and those officers covered it up at the hospital!

I caught them all on a audio recorder admitting to this murder conspiracy and they were framing me for their crimes as well, and you can tell by listening to it that they had a lot of fun molesting children and giving me blame behind my back!

I was very ill at the time, stuck at home, too ill to go anywhere and my family pretended nothing’s wrong while my wife poisoned me!

everyone in my family knew of my wife’s affair, they knew Eric Carlson was almost a twin to me, and they all kept it a secret from me while my wife poisoned me and Eric Carlson framed me, my family knew they were doing this to me!

I was surrounded by people that conspired with my wife to pretend nothing’s wrong and those relatives in law enforcement just covered it up at the hospital!

I was a plasma donor and everyone in the family knew it and they did not care that my wife Joan Wagar was guilty even when I found her hidden poison in the fucking kitchen!

I am badly crippled from being poisoned and I am currently being blackmailed at the threat of death by these people in law enforcement and by family members while they continue to harm others!

They already confessed to the murder of a missing runaway, last name Hunter, I caught them admitting to that on a audio recorder, I don’t remember the first name but I secured that audio!

In 2008 they murdered Donna Minor, Joan Wagar’s mother, while Eric Carlson’s brother who is in law enforcement were above my apartment and they were trying to hide it!

They later bragged on a audio death threat they will kill more if I don’t do what they want and that I will “See it!” if I don’t!

Ever since I caught them on a audio recorder they brag on audio recordings!

Emily Smith ON December 5, 2010 – 11:19 pm
I am a teacher helping student write a research paper on serial killers. Albert Fish is one that has been discussed in the blogs but not on the website. Extemely disturbing. Lived and killed in New York in the early to mid 1900′s. People were so ignorant to the fact that a human could do these things to a child said that it had to be the boogey man, a werewolf, or Count Dracula. He would kill young children, slice them up, and cook them. He would then send letters to their family members about how he desecrated their bodies, and how they tasted. Extremely vulgar and disturbing. This is a very informational and great websited, but I think Fish deserves a place here.
***Emily Smith, I salute you for bringing awareness to your self and your students. Knowlege, awareness, and trusting your instincts are the best defense to prevent becoming a victim of predators and serial killers.

After over 3 years Meredith Hope Emerson: one of GMH’s innocent victims is remembered by people from all over the World. People that had never met her, yet felt that that they knew her:

January 25, 2011
I never knew Meredith but felt like I’ve known her forever-even after years have gone by I still remember her and think about her and her death- as a fellow animal-lover I feel she is truly an angel in the physical sense, looking over all the animals from above. Meredith you will live on through every animal that is adopted and saved from death-may you rest in peace knowing that you were a special person who gave love unconditionally

Below is the link for the transcripts of law enforcement(GBI) interviews with Gary Michael Hilton, the man accused of murdering Meredith Emerson.

Warning: Some of the transcript contains explicit details about Emerson’s death that may be considered disturbing.

Wolfscratch January 26, 2011 at 1:39 pm

During the 01/07/2008 interview session that was recorded Hilton sounds relaxed, chatty and cavalier about his actions.

Twenty-four-year-old Meredith Emerson went hiking with her dog New Year’s Day on Blood Mountain, GA (Appalacian Trail). Hilton describes striking up a conversation with her about their dogs.

He told investigators his only motive that day was to target someone, anyone, for their credit cards and pin numbers.

He thought by choosing Emerson it would be easy. But he had another thing coming. “She fought that and I lost control of the baton. And I’m good, too,” Hilton said in the interview. “This girl, who was, I think it was you probably, or one of the GBIs said that little hundred and twenty pound girl (unintelligible) whip your ***, so she about did.”

Over the course of three days Emerson repeatedly gave Hilton the wrong pin code information, forcing him to drive to several different banks.

But there are more disturbing details. Hilton said he raped Emerson the first night and over the course of three days, kept her tied up, chained to trees or in his van and at night they camped out.

The day Hilton killed Emerson, he told her he was going to release her, but instead bludgeoned her with a tire iron.

I began the journey backtracking & researching Gary Michael (Mack)Hilton on 01/06/08, which began as a search for Meredith Hope Emerson’s remains. The investigative techniques used were conventional & unconventional. Although I have paid a heavy price over the 3 yr/18 hr a day journey. I would gladly do it all again if only one unknown victim of GMH & Assoc is identified & located. Roger L. Depue says it best:


Evil is more than a vague notion. It is an entity, and it is manifest on the earth. It has reflexes and intuition, senses vulnerability, and changes its form to adapt to its surroundings.
Those who do not believe the Devil walks this earth have not seen the things that I have seen. Evil is not a discrete entity that springs forth fully formed. It is born in the mind, takes root there as fantasy, and prospers when normal human restraint can no longer contain it.
I have seen it devour the personalities of men like Richard Speck, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Ted Bundy, turning them into blank-faced sociopaths who clearly know right from wrong, but choose, time and again, to follow their own base urges, with complete disregard for the terrible human suffering they cause.
I believe that every act of homicide causes a slight unbalancing in the world, and that it diminishes life’s universal equation. In the interest of justice, it is imperative that someone try to right that imbalance. But the task of fighting evil can take a terrible toll on the people who are charged with it. It can cost them their families, their equilibrium, their capacity for joy…

Police: Convicted Killer Admits At Least 12 Slayings

MOBILE, Ala. — Jeremy Bryan Jones, a suspected serial killer convicted in the rape and murder of an Alabama woman, has admitted at least 12 more slayings in four other states, authorities said Wednesday.

“He enjoyed raping and killing,” said Mobile County sheriff’s detective Paul Burch.

Jones, 32, of Miami, Okla., faces a possible death penalty at sentencing Dec. 1 on his capital murder conviction in the killing of Lisa Marie Nichols, 44, of rural Turnerville, Ala.

He also is charged with killing a teenage girl in Georgia and a woman in Louisiana. He is a suspect in 10 other deaths — seven in Oklahoma, two in Georgia and one in Kansas — and could be linked to four others in Georgia, local and state law enforcement officials said at a news conference.


Was Jeremy Jones, one of GMH’s Associates?

Wolfscratch: Jones, a construction worker told LE, acording to my info, that he dumped her remains near sweetwater Creek. LE searched Sweetwater Creek in Fulton County, GA Her remains were Found near Sweetwater Juno in Dawson County, ‘Dawson Forest WMA, GA, within a rocks throw from where Levi Frady, and Meredith Hope Emerson’s remains were found.

Patrice Endres was found on a road that has yet another church on the same street called “Sweet Water Creek” church. The same “Sweet Water Creek” Jeremy Jones spoke of disposing of Patrice. I now wonder was his confession true but sketchy because of his drug abuse? Authorities in Forsyth County say that because Patrice was not found where Jones claims he put her, does not mean he is cleared. They still believe he is the one who took Patrice that fateful day.What makes this mystery so interesting is the fact that Patrice was found five days after an Alabama judge sentenced Jeremy Jones to die for murdering another woman.

Pickens Co. Progress (archives)

Grave Dowsing:

Trying is believing. I stepped slowly across a burying ground, carrying two brass dowsing rods ahead of me. Held level and a little higher than my waist, the 21-inch rods pointed straight ahead. An additional five and a half inches of brass turned down at 90 degrees through my fingers.
With my fingers curled, the long brass of the rods lay across my index fingers between the hand and first knuckle. At the 90-degree bend, the short handles pointed straight down, curled inside my fingers, excluding the two smallest digits. The brass rode against the outside of my pinkie fingers. Thumbs stayed folded out of the way.
As I moved on to a grave, the rods turned inward toward each other and aligned parallel to the plot. The sensation was only as eerie as watching the play of a compass needle. I was doing this under the tutelage of an expert, Jasper dowser Joe Chastain.
A longtime resident of Pickens County, Chastain is retired from Lockheed. He started dowsing when he was nineteen years old.
“I didn’t have a teacher,” Chastain said. “The first time I ever used the rods, an old farmer had some. I was in a little disbelief.” But as the rods acted in his hands, Chastain discovered there was something to it.
Tradition calls for a forked peach branch when hunting for water, but that is unnecessary, Chastain says. Any forked stick, dry or green, works just as good, the expert said. “The forked stick that the old-timers use works very good with water,” Chastain said. “It works with me too. I just don’t like it.”
“Brass is easier,” Chastain explained. “I like to think it picks up better, but that’s just me. Aluminum is not good, because it’s too light. It doesn’t feel right in your hands.”
Fine-tuning the art, Chastain discovered he could find most anything with the rods: water pipes; mineral veins; a quarter tossed out on the ground. Chastain said that when crossing a vein of iron ore “the rods will open, close and open again.”
“Water is the most pronounced thing you’ll find when you look for something,” Chastain said. But he said the rods’ reaction to graves is also pronounced.
Some fifteen years ago, Chastain taught Carl Etheridge to use the rods. Now retired from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Etheridge was chief ranger in charge of land management at the Corps’ Allatoona reservoir when Chastain taught him the dowser’s art.
With some information from a member of the Brooke family and his newfound dowsing skills, Etheridge said he located the old Brooke family cemetery on Corps land after a topographical map plotted the graveyard in the wrong position. He located the graveyard in the Sweetwater Campground near Lake Allatoona in Cherokee County, Etheridge said. A monument marks the site today.
Etheridge has practiced his dowsing to a point where he now assists land developers in locating graves to move them. Etheridge said he once assisted an archaeologist, moving some graves. Using his dowsing rods, Etheridge said, he found one more grave than the archaeologist. The scientist told Etheridge he had only found a stump hole and wrapped up the dig without exploring the final find.
Etheridge said he shortly returned to the finished dig and conducted a dig of his own. He said he found an infant grave: coffin hardware and glass from a porthole-style coffin, popular in the late 1800s. Under the glass was the one piece of bone Etheridge discovered in the grave, the back of a child’s skull.
Etheridge said in Georgia’s acidic soil, sometimes all you find in an old grave is a blue residue in the soil indicating where the body lay.
Etheridge said he boxed all the contents of the child grave he found and presented them to the doubting archaeologist.
But if dowsing for graves works, the question is why. Chastain says anything buried, whether once living or not, gives off rings of energy–something like the magnetic lines of force surrounding a magnet.
For the Pickens County Historical Society, Chastain has located what are believed to be unmarked graves at the Fitzsimmons Cemetery at Marble Hill. Society members also believe he has found 20 graves of the previously lost Daniels Cemetery near Tate.
But if folks ask too many questions regarding the science of the process, Chastain sometimes tells them it might more than they need to know. Soft-spoken and slightly mystical in demeanor, Chastain’s large brown eyes peer through eyeglasses with gentle intensity. Around him, you get the sense Chastain is tuned to the natural world.
And while science might attempt to explain Chastain’s locating technique, it would fall all over itself trying to explain some of his other claimed abilities with the rods. The rods can tell him the gender of a grave occupant, Chastain says.
“Normally, on a female, the rod will point to the head,” he explained. “On a male, to the feet.”
Chastain admits he is the only dowser he knows who can make the gender determination. Chastain says he can know if there is more than one occupant in a grave. Sometimes women who died in childbirth were buried with the child lost in the birthing.
But more eerie still, Chastain says he can feel through the rods if a grave occupant died a violent death. He says the brass goes crazy in his hands.
Wives tales? Maybe. I can only say I know the rods aligned with a grave when I stepped across it.
Chastain says focusing your mind on what you are hunting is the key to finding with the rods–tuning yourself to the pointing brass.
“You have to know how to use ‘em. You have to know how to hold ‘em. You have to know how to read ‘em,” Chastain said.
“Don’t bury it,” he said. “I’ll find
Joe Chastain is a ‘Master Dowser’, and is self taught over 40 years ago. He locates graves for Historical Societies, Law Enforcement, and private citizens locating ancestor’s family plots. He was my teacher.
I contacted him to verify my findings in Gary Hilton’s primary den: Wildcat Tract: Dawson Forest WMA. Without knowlege of my results, he verified my findings, and made additional discoveries.

GMH was eyewitnessed at all burial grounds that have been identified. He marks them with glass canning jars on a tree limb, and adorns some with native american artifacts.

A Close Encounter With A Killer Mind
By Tyrra B Meserve Greene Publishing, Inc.

Since the beginning of time, within every culture, in every society, there have been those who are incapable of adapting and blending within the boundaries of their communal environment. Driven by a force that is incomprehensible to the peers upon which they prey, they feed on the terror and panic their crimes leave in the heart of the community. Unable to control their carnal desires for more than just brief moments, they reside in the dark recesses of the mind, opportunistically seizing victims to compensate for shortcomings they themselves are unable to overcome. Behind false smiles, it is truly then that the eyes become the window to the soul, or in some cases, the lack thereof.In most instances, the serial killer acts alone, extracting pleasure from the anonymity that he presents. However, in rare cases, these predators find in each other a kindred mind, linking up to work together, proving the old adage of water seeking its own level, even for heinous reasons. Whether the union is long-term, or short-lived, these serial killing partners present a unique problem for law enforcement officers trying to solve crimes.Recent developments have allowed Gary Michael Hilton to be charged with the murder of Meredith Emerson, and Cheryl Dunlap, however, questions still remain regarding Hilton’s involvement with other unsolved murders. It is currently under investigation as to whether Hilton is indeed a serial killer, and, if so, how many other victims did he claim, and, in what areas. In a recent interview with a Madison County resident, there has also now arisen the question as to if Hilton acted entirely alone.Debra Stephens, a Madison resident for many years, recalls a strange event that took place back in 2000. A local, who knew some of the more obscure river access points and sun-bathing spots, was taking advantage of a warm summer’s day and the company of her dogs. As she was lying on her towel, soaking up rays, Stephens was startled by her companions barking.“There’s canoers who go up and down the river all the time,” she said “so I didn’t think anything of it at first. Then I noticed there weren’t any other boats in the water and the dogs were focusing up the hill on the other bank.”Following their line of sight, Stephens noticed two men standing at the top of the hill, on the other side of the river, watching her.“I thought it was kind of odd when I noticed they were wearing blue jeans, sunglasses and boots. Not really boating clothes, if you know what I mean.”When the men stepped back into the shadows of the trees and did not reappear, Stephens said her apprehension abated a bit and she returned to sunbathing. Then, a few minutes later, the dogs started barking again and Stephens, now nervous, looked around once more. The dogs, trotting ahead of her, rounded a close bend and Stephens walked straight down to the waters edge to get a better view.“This older guy was paddling down in a canoe and it looked as though he was having a time of it. It was only he and his dog. At first, he asked if this was where they picked up the people for canoe rides. When I said no, this is private property, he kind of looked around, up the hill where the two guys had been.”It was at this point that Stephens said the older man looked like he accidentally flipped the canoe, trapping the dog underneath. As Stephens was debating whether or not she should jump in and help, she noticed the man glancing up, occasionally looking up towards where she had seen the other two men earlier.“He made it to the other bank and acted like he was going to lift the canoe,” Stephens remembered, “but then he just kept looking around and his dog was just laying there. His dog didn’t bark back at my dogs or anything. It was weird. It was almost like the dog had been through this before and he was trained.”When the man fell to the ground, he appeared to accidentally push his canoe back into the water where it started to float downstream. Deciding to lend a hand, Stevens started to get into the water on the opposite bank.“I looked up and there was one of the guys I had seen earlier, about halfway down the hill. I shouted up to him Hey, that man needs help, but he just looked at the older man, turned around and walked back up into the trees.”Stephens stopped the canoe from floating away, and then gave it a good shove back toward the old man on the bank. Deciding it was about time to head home, Stephens kept an eye on the man as she swam back to her side of the shore, gathered her things and got set to leave.“As I was walking back down the river bank to my truck, I glanced up the hill and there were those same two guys again. Well, one of them looked down at the older man and he looked back up at the guy and I thought they nodded at each other. When I passed by them on my side of the river, I remember thinking, now that’s weird; he doesn’t have anything in the canoe. Nothing, I mean, normally people have a life preserver, equipment, something. He didn’t. It was completely empty. Just him, his dog and a cane.”Stephens also found it disturbing that, as she passed the scene, both men that she had seen earlier had not only re-emerged, but they had picked up the canoe and were carrying it up the hill with the older man and his dog in tow.“I noticed that he wasn’t using his walking cane,” Stephens recalled. “He just followed them up the hill until they disappeared. That’s when I wondered how he had gotten the canoe down to the river by himself. There’s not a lot of places where we were at that you can drive up and drop a canoe, you have to hike it in and that didn’t seem like something he could have done by himself.“When I got home, I told a couple of people what had happened and they just told me I was nuts. I couldn’t help thinking that if I had gone over to their side of the river, I wouldn’t have made it back, but everyone I told laughed and said nobody was trying to get me, so I just pushed it to the back of my mind and tried to forget it.”Then, watching the news recently, Stephens got a jolt. A little thinner, a little older looking and worse for wear, Gary Michael Hilton looked like the man she had seen that day.“Naw,” Stephens said to herself. “I’m just spooked.”Letting it go once more, a week passed before on another airing of the local news, Stephens got a chance to hear Hilton speak.“I jumped out of my chair,” she said, “yelling, That’s Him! That’s the *!#* man from the river.”They were trying to get me,” Stephens stated with conviction “I know that now. I could feel that something wasn’t right. It was like they knew each other. It just felt wrong.”Sergeant Tim Baxter of the Leon County Sheriff’s Department was not able to give much information due to Hilton’s ongoing investigation; however, he is interested in connecting Stevens with the right authorities to take her statement.“The FBI is working with the different case investigators, developing a long term timeline for Hilton,” Baxter stated. “They are going back to before (Hilton) was born. So far, we believe he’s a loner, but we want to know where he’s been and whom he’s been seen with. We don’t want to rule out connections he may have to other cases.”As police still gather leads linking Hilton with other crimes, they are tracing his footsteps in the past. Only time will tell if police have caught all the right men.Staff writer Tyrra B Meserve can be reached at tyrra@greenepublishing.com

At the outset of juror questioning, State Attorney Willie Meggs briefly outlined the case. He said Dunlap, a 46-year-old Sunday school teacher and mother of two grown sons, was abducted from Leon Sinks, a popular hiking spot just north of the Leon/Wakulla county line.

“From there she was not seen again,” Meggs said.

.: ‘A verbal mistake that is thought to reveal an unconscious belief, thought, or emotion.’

GMH, hid in plain sight. During the time he held Meredith Hope Emerson, the thermometer dipped below 0, the temp was very frigid and wind gusts up to 50 mph during the night. There was a campfire ban in Georgia due to the drought conditions.

GMH, is very intelligent, calculating, cagey, and creative, yet very evil.
Here it is over 18 months after his capture. What do we know about him?

His license was queried over 80 times in GA alone(many times acting suspicious and in restricted areas of State & National Forests or posted private property.

Created a movie: ‘Deadly Run’, that depicts his evil deeds, in 1994, almost 15 years before his arrest. (Serial Killer with a Script?)

He is Military Special Forces trained, and claims to have served two tours in Vietnam, yet was stationed in Germany.

Upon coviction for the abduction and murder od Meredith Hope Emerso, his DNA was returned in less than 24 hours and Cold Case Detectives from every adjacent State were waiting for the results.

He was sighted as far north as Pennsylvania, and lived in Miami in 1982.

GMH’s IQ is within the top 10% of the world.

GMH, had no victim profile, only a preference.

GMH, tortures, rapes, and performs rituals on his victims.

GMH, was evil, demonic, cannibal, ritual: Serial Killer with no human emotions.

The GBI knew that an abnormally high number of women were vanishing without a trace since 1980.

GMH, was a master emulator; travelling preacher, soldier, visually impaired person, etc.

GMH, was very knowlegable about ancient Religion and History. He is the Devils Deciple.’

GMH, frequented Churches for money, and food..

That he was self diagnosed with MS, and was taking huge amounts of ridillin and other rxs with the side affect of homicidal tendacies.

GMH’s Doctor that prescribed the medication he was consuming was fined $6,500.00.

He emits an acrid odor that lingers in enclosed areas.

Extracted his teeth to make himself look more evil.

That he was a copycat of MOs and Signatures of many Serial Killers prior, creating the illusion of many active Serial Killers deeming him a Stealth Predator.

GMH, had sidekicks and Associates.

Torched his fiance’s house in Dekalb County, GA in 1982 with her and her brother and sister occupying the house…spent only 4 hours in jail, and was ever prosecuted.

GMH, bragged that he hasn’t been caught since he was 14 years old(47 years).

GMH, is being investigated pre birth.

Evidence is being gathered over 18 months after his arrest, and no trial date has been set.

All media(local & National) has been silenced since March 2008.

Criminal profilers have shyed away from attempting an analysis of GMH. He is an anomally. He fits no profile.

All significant evidence has been sealed at the request of the State Attorney and Defense Attorney in Leon County, Fl.

Been reading many of the comments concerning the correctional officer’s testimony on 02/11/11. Most responses were that he didn’t wear a tie, or his attire was’nt apropriate, as he was competing in a fashion show, rather than testifying, and sharing critical-damning evidence in a Death Penalty Trial of a Sadistical, Malignant, Psychopathic Serial Killer for the Savage abduction, torture, mutilation, and murder of Cheryl Hodges Dunlap…

Overheard conversation between GMH and another inmate (Fred Summers)
At Officers Station there is an intercom to every inmate’s cell
Correction Officer Wynn listened without GMH’s knowledge:

Fred Summers and GMH talking
GMH said for a life sentence he would tell them where the Head was and that the family would want to know. GMH was ‘Laughing’ about it


Wolfscratch February 12, 2011 at 11:58 am


The only regret GMH had about Killing Cheryl Dunlap, was getting caught. He could kick his a** everyday for the rest of his life for getting caught.
….busy highway…Crawfordville highway
…when Cheryl Dunlap was killed, he had her for hours and a few days
He was very selective about who he picked
Victim was a Sunday School teacher and plenty of guys must’ve wanted her

When asked by Summers if GMH, had gotten a Rush from the killing, he said “it was like in the Military, you have to go in and destroy the ‘Entire Village’ Like a Warrior”.

Gary Michael(Mack) Hilton: Serial Killer said, “I am a ‘Hunter, a Professional, a Soldier’ on a Perpetual Mission”.

Folks, after hearing Corrections Officer Wynn’s testimony, his attire was the last thing on their minds..

Cheryl Dunlap: Abducted from Leon Sinks: Appalachicola National Forest

A soldier scouts out and plans his/her mission to insure success. This is referred as a reconnaissance mission. The intelligence(info) gathered is then cosidered in the strategy and tactics for the mission. GMH was a Soldier on a perpetual mission..a Hunter and Professional.
Her car was reconned in the Leon Sinks parking lot, which would have revealed a treasure trove of data as to Cheryl Dunlap’s employment(parking sticker) for FSU and information as too her profession were obtained by a quick scan of his soulless
I would have to conclude that Cheryl Dunlap would have, on or in her vehicle, the fish emblem and other signs of her Christian Faith and her Love of God…

On death row, Bundy admitted to decapitating at least a dozen of his victims with a hacksaw…

The sound heard on the audio of the video of December 03, 2007, wasn’t the sound of a Bayonet, or Serated knife as GMH described the decapitation, in the GBI interview of 01/07/08. It was the sound made when disecting bone with a hacksaw. A hacksaw was found in GMH’s van upon his arrest 01/04/08….

I believe the defense will be calling people who knew GMH before he was caught.

Dino, from his childhood who said GMH had confided something unsettling to him when they were growing up together. I am pretty sure he is a witness.

And another of his childhood friends, a female will testify.

And maybe even John Tabor and/or Samueal Rael.

All to bring in the insanity of GMH.

Just what I am thinking.

I was a friend of Gary Hilton 50 years ago in Hialeah Florida when we were in junior high school together, he said i was his only friend almost,and told me a few things that were sort of strange and i never forgot them or him 50 years later,till his defense attorney contacted me yesterday and asked if we could talk,what she said shocked me ,the way he changed and what he had done ,im sorry i couldn’t have changed his life somehow or other.he was a quiet guy,we would swim in the Miami river together ,from his back porch,it was a good time then.dino in sunny miami out.

Note saw where Fred Rosen asked Dino Sclfani, if ‘G’s” Attorney has contacted him yet. This was on Facebook a couple weeks ago. Guess Dino is assisting in Fred’s Book, huh?

There were frantic calls repeatedly made on 9/7/07 by Gary Michael Hilton to Hilton’s doctor, an Endocrinologist, dealing with Diabetes, Endocrinology & Metabolism, Internal Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia,(GA), who recently (May 2009) settled an issue by agreement with the Georgia Board of Medicine for Public Reprimand, and was fined $7,500. Hilton was prescribed Ritalin and Effexor without following proper procedures.




July 9, 2006: Group Criticizes Effexor Maker for Failure to Warn
The Medical Accountability Network, a private nonprofit organization dedicated to ethical issues in medicine, criticized Effexor maker Wyeth Pharmaceuticals for failing to adequately warn about the risk of;
‘homicidal ideation’
associated with Effexor use. ‘Homicidal ideation’ (homicidal thoughts) was added to the Effexor XR label in November 2005, as one of the drug’s rare adverse events. The Medical Accountability Network says that the warning was not well-publicized, and that Wyeth failed to send letters to doctors or issue warning labels announcing the change….

Scarrgot’s post on (anonymous forum)/Cheryl Dunlap Thread :

I have been mostly lurking on this discussion for quite some time. I do have something to add but understand that I am not going into detail for several reasons. First of all, I knew GMH from age 14 – 17 in Miami Florida. I went to school with him. He attended Miami Springs Junior High School in 9th grade and then entered Hialeah High School in 10th grade. He dropped out of school in either his junior or senior year in high school to join the army. The last time I saw him in person was either 1963 or 1964 when he stopped by the high school I attended and told me he was joining the army. When I knew him he lived in Hialeah with his mother and step father. Hialeah is a large suburban city within Metropolitan Miami area. The incident referred to at age 14 was a domestic disturbance between him,his mother and step father. His step father was shot during the disturbance. His step father lived, it was a juvenile court issue, no charges were filed to my knowledge.

He called me in 1982 when I was living in another state. He had gotten my phone number from a family member in Miami by telling them he was someone else, representing a fictitious company and needed to get in touch with me. We spoke briefly and I hung up on him because he seemed to be talking very strangely. I had no contact with him after that.

Think, there is a little more to the story than meets the eye. GMH was going by Dekalb co, GA attorney Samuel Rael’s home and taking showers…GMH lived in a storage warehouse at the time.
Rael said, “I knew that he was Sociopath, just didn’t know that he was violent”
Rael knew about the attempted murder in 1985 at the biker bar and the Arson with the 3 occupants in 1982 and then produces a Serial Killer movie with GMH: ‘Deadly Run’ – Hunting Humans….
Rael was/is an Associate…He was at the Dawson Co., GA Jail on 01/07/08 when GMH located Meredith’s remains…

Gary Hilton should have been encarcerated since 1982. How many innocent victims would have been saved if he had faced Justice then?
We tried for over two years, to retrieve this info from the Dekalb, GA Judicial System, but was unsuccessful:

He set two gallon jugs of gasoline in the carport of the Green family home with 2 strings leading up the driveway where he sat in his “BLACK CAMERO” ( A NEW CAR TO ADD TO THE LIST OF HIS VEHICLES) then set the strings on fire. They, Ms. Green and her family (her sister and brother) members heard a noise ran out of the house and were able to put out the fire with a hose. It happened at 0001 hours. When Hilton was driving off he hit a parked car, thus the hit & run charge. One of the young ladies in the Green family had dated Hilton a few times, but broke it off. That was in Feb. 1982. In May, 2 weeks before the fire on May 28, 1982 he started calling to harass her asking if she wanted to make some money prostituting for him. She said he sounded like he had eaten a few ludes and she hung up on him. He was arrested on First Degree Arson charges and booked into Dekalb County jail. He lived at the time at 5135 West Mountain St. #A-17, Stone Mountain, GA. The report indicates the Green’s signed statements that they knew who the arsonist was and could positively identify him as Hilton, but I guess he just found a way to talk his way out of it or the girls were just too afraid of him and what he might do next.

Case #82-103081 & #82-103082, the report ends with case is closed and cleared, pending criminal prosecution. Hilton signed for a copy of the report on June 11, 1982.

My vote is yes, if she was a friend of Cheryl Dunlap’s.

Couple testified that Cheryl Dunlap, had ‘Sad Eyes’…..while reading a book in Leon Sinks; Appalachicola National Park, FL, 12/01/2007; that tragic day.

GMH, threatened to shoot anyone if Meredith Emerson, warned them, the day they hiked in Dawson Forest WMA; ATLANTA Tract, GA on 01/03/2008.

Clerk at the NC trailhead shop 12/07/2005, ‘Rosana Milani, seemed very nervous/anxious when she came in and purchased the slacks, backpack, etc. The man with her said that he was a travelling campground Preacher’.

GMH, would have threatened Cheryl Dunlap, with the pellet pistol/knock off of actual firearm, in the same way,IMO. Cheryl would have complied, not because fear of her life, but due to the threat of harm to others.

Scotts2, from another forum, is a State Park Ranger. We spent the day together in 2008, at the Atlanta Tract where Meredith’s remains were located. He brought along one of the type pellet pistols that GMH possessed to show me it’s authenic apearance. As a hunter, my whole life and familiarity of most weapons, I couldn’t tell that it wasn’t an actual firearm…

GMH, a felon, would have been arrested if caught in possession of a firearm, but not a pellet pistol.

In GMH’s confession to FDLE during extradition/transport to Leon co, FL from GA, he said, ” I didn’t start predatoring(hunting innocent victims/prey) til September, 2007.
Taking into consideration, his deflection tactics, the Bryants weren’t viciously murdered til Oct. 2007,

What innocent victim are we missing here? When I called the GBI from the Huddle House on or about 01/10/2008, to report the discovery of his garbage pile(underground) and icebox in the ground, at Wildcat, Dawson Forest WMA Campsite/Den, GA, the agent, on the phone said, “Mr. Adams, we have located all of his victims remains, all 5 of them”…

John & Irene Bryant, Meredith Hope Emerson, Cheryl Hodges Dunlap = only 4 victims.

I told her, ” If you think GMH has killed only 5 people, you need to place your badge and gun on your desk, cut the open sign off, and slam the door on your way out…

John Cagle;GBI
Special Agent and lead Investigator in the Meredith Hope Emerson Investigation was sitting on the stool next to me having breakfast and heard the conversation. His face was red as a beet.
I noticed this and asked, “you are not GBI are you”? He stuck his chest out and said, “Yes I Am”!!!
I pointed my finger in his face and said, “yall killed Meredith Hope Emerson, due to your incompetence and letting John Tabor con you!”
I glanced around and all the customers, waitresses, and cooks had vacated the premises.
I told Agent Cagle, “the GBI deprived Meredith Hope Emerson of her inalianable rights of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, due to this incompetence!”

He said, “would please ‘YOU’, shut up so I can eat my breakfast.” Surprised he didn’t arrest me…
He knew what I said was the truth, or he would have….

I honor all opinions, and welcome debate and criticism of my comments. The comments and revelations that I make are not conjecture or speculation. I have been posting on various blogs and forums since 01/06/08 on GMH’s ‘Trail of Terror’. All of my comments are archived, I have documented my journey for alibi and memory purposes. I have challenged anyone in the Justice System, LE, Profilers, Scholars, crime sleuths, etc., to disprove any revelation that I have made.
GMH’s many victims have no voice, and demand revelation.
I have comitted to finding the truth at whatever the cost. GMH, is not the first, last, or only and the only way he and his associates, as well as future Serial Killers, will be identified and brought to justice is through knowlege, truth, and the use of all available resourses.

The following is a “transcripts of law enforcement interviews on 01/07/08, with Gary Michael Hilton, the man accused of murdering Meredith Emerson” while enroute to Dawson Forest WMA; Atlanta Tract, where her remains were located in two locations aproximately 1/2 mile apart.
The interview is laced with deflections, half truths, and obvious lies, however gives the reader insights to Hilton’s evil and demonic mind.
One example of his calculating responses is when ask if he raped MHE. He first answers no. When told that if he is caught lying on any of the questions, his other answers will be considered untruthful. GMH, then answered “yes”. When asked, how many times, he answered “once”….

GMH, states in the interview that this is not the only body that has been dumped here…

Note that he never mentions the Wildcat Tract of Dawson Forest WMA, in the interview although he was eyewitnessed by many people, including myself on 01/03/08 at 6:30 PM, in this area. There is a reason for this exclusion. This is his primary den location, ritual, torture, and burial grounds. I am confident that his souveneirs will eventually be located here, unless he takes this info to his grave..

‘Warning: the transcript contains very graphic details about Meredith Hope Emerson’s death that may be considered disturbing to most of humanity.’

(Note: The interview is in Large Caps, which is a transcript from the GBI in its original form.)

A few weeks ago I received a call on caller ID, from the public defender’s office: Leon Co., FL where GMH, is on trial facing the death penalty for the tragic murder of Cheryl Dunlap..

When I returned the call, I reached an Investigator with the PD’s Office. The investigator said, ” hold on a second while I retrieve your file.” Then asked, “do you still have your blog?

Seems the Public Defender’s office wanted to know if I had any info that would help in the ‘Defense’ of Gary Michael Hilton & Associates’???

Think that I was ranting in January of last year? Before I hung up, I had convicted GMH, and the entire ‘Justice System’, not that they needed any help…

“Let me see if I have this right”: ‘You want me to provide you with helpful information that will prevent Gary Michael Hilton, an evil, demonic, cannibal, ritual; Serial Killer, that has confessed and has been sentenced to ‘Life In Prison’ in GA, for abducting an innocent young lady; Meredith Hope Emerson, from the AT, raping and torturing her for four days, murdering her in a savage manner, and then mutilating and decapitating her, and dumping her remains in the woods like a pile of trash’, from receiving the death penalty’?

The investigator then asked if I really thought that Gary Hilton had over 150 victims. I said, “no that it is a very conservative number and includes only the ones deceased.”

Don’t think they’ll be calling back anytime soon…
